Its funny. Of the say 10 different ATI setups, Only one did the drivers actually work ( still required some tweaking in CCC to get my video playback to not look so ****ty ).. Currently using AMD/ATI card in my HTPC setup, Works flawless..
So one out of 10 of my AMD setups actually worked.

The only Nvidia driver problem I even had was when I was using hacked drivers ( so really it was my fault ) I've had over 10 different nvidia setups, So one out of 10 of my Nvidia setups had problems.


EDIT:
And lol at all you ATI kids, You know damn well your drivers are sub par.. YOU just refuse to admit that someone else might be better. You pebkac at life

The real problem here is that people rely on some freeware program to delete drivers...

Driver Sweeper is probably looking for the default places that most typical drivers install to. It couldn't possibly know where Nvidia and ATI are putting everything at and what they are modifying in the process; So in turn how is this program going to know what all to delete and change back to normal if it isn't advanced enough to do that in the first place?

The program wasn't made to change complicated graphics drivers and across different platforms. I never have had this issue that people do about drivers because I know to reinstall the OS when I get a different card, problem solved!

I wish people would just reinstall their OS each time they switch cards. Its as simple as that.

"But mommy I don't want to have to do that, too much work even though I am sitting in temp controlled environment in a comfy computer chair!"
Reinstall your OS each time you install a different brand GPU, seriously? I don't plan to do that, I'm glad I can change my motherboard whenever I want thanks to Win 7. It should never be the purpose of any expansion hardware developer to force you to do a fresh install of your OS in order to use their hardware.

Yeah and Nvidia added a feature to the install process, Lets your "Perform Clean Install" ( cleans old, installs new )..
Or just install right over the old ones ( which you can do , with no ill effects, Manual G from Nvidia confirmed this )
+ 1 to Nvidia for that one
post #45 of 177
Shame. Never had any issues with my AMD/ATI drivers in my 5850 CF setup. Owned a GTX 260 SLI setup before my current one and never had any issues either. (only crashes I've had on either setup was when I OC'ed too far, hehe)

To dismiss an entire line of products based on one experience seems a bit immature. If you personally have had a lot of issues and you know its isolated to the card/driver, then I understand. Besides I remember nvidia releasing a driver a while ago that had major issue with the auto fan speed control that would not boost the speed even when the GPU temp kept on rising.

Still isn't as effective as reinstalling the OS. Quit trying to defend a flawed process that doesn't work well even if "Manual G" says it does.

Also, do you think Nvidia is going to know how to remove your old ATI drivers and everything associated with it? You think AMD is going to give them documentation that says "Oh hey, this is exactly how to remove our drivers so people can use your cards instead!"

I'm sorry, but I think the argument is valid.

Whilst opinions are usually subjective to personal experience, I think there's some substance for this, but it's just hard to prove.

As for my personal experience, for what it's worth, I've used nVidia for years, until last week, and already I've decided to never by an AMD card again. Just so much messing about finding drivers that work, especially for different games, and just generally fiddling to get things to perform as they should. Of all the nVidia cards I had, I always just installed the latest driver and I was off. No tweaking or driver related crashes, that I know of.

And yeah, I think generally there ARE more AMD card complaints and problems. Just because YOU have never had any, it doesn't mean AMD drivers are sound. I'm not a fanboy, but I don't think I'll be getting an AMD card again. Not worth the hassle.

To make it clear, I don't just base my thoughts on my experiences, but the fact of the huge amount of complaints that are also heard on a daily basis; more so than nVidia.

Have you used it?
Ive installed 20 different sets of drivers since I built this rig. They all worked fine

lol and I dont need to defend anything.. I know my drivers are superior, Its you that needs to prove your worth.
